Mounties investigate hockey violence

Nanaimo RCMP are investigating a complaint from a parent of a player who was hit and received significant internal injuries at a minor hockey league game.

The investigation stems from a game played Sept. 23 at Frank Crane Arena between a visiting Saanich bantam A boys team and a Nanaimo bantam A team.  Near the end of the game a Saanich player was allegedly hit by a Nanaimo player and sustained a serious injury.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has video of the game, please contact Const. Ryan Scrase of the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
